Fishing gear

About a week ago we were up at Wilson Lake above Nakusp. There were three people who showed up and started pitching a tent. I went over to see them. One man and two ladies. They had a canoe with them and I asked the man if he was going to fish. He was from Switzerland. He said he forgot his fishing gear. I was heading home and offered my gear to him, asking he return it to my address I passed on to him. A few days later he was at my door returning my gear. Very nice people and honest. Thank you.


’Tis the time of year when you should double check, and second guess, everything politicians say. What is reasonable? Could they actually do what they are promising? Is it even in their jurisdiction? Are they being nice because they are nice or because they want me to vote for them?

Baked goods

Cheers to the chefs at Dose for their delectable millionaire shortbread bars. To. Die. For. Love them.


Round of applause to the artists, musicians, volunteers and the B.C. Interior Forestry Museum organizers for a lovely event on Saturday. What a beautiful location and a wonderful idea. Hope to see the event again next year.

Revy K-9

Bear hugs to Marika for going above and beyond to help me with my reactive dog. Slowly but surely we are making progress thanks to your direction.
